Former Principal (Allan Hedstrom) funeral

Rabi High School as a whole now awaits your funeral this coming weekend

Memories of your days with us at Rabi High School remains

We will never forget the loud voice coming from your office when it comes for discipline, laughter during character parade,  playing hide and seek with students etc, and at the end of the day, sitting around the bowl with teachers chatting away to ease the brain (stress)

What is taught and shared every Monday during assembly were…

Mauri mauri kaain Biiti!!!

 Mauri all you guys who are 'attracted' here.

This is especially to my beautiful cousin (Tumeima). Well, she was beautiful when she was running about with a one piece bikini, ha ha ha,

You ok? and hows Benia? Beniaminia, Mauna, and bukinikoro Joseph? and the rest of the family?

 I'm just enjoying my last days here in Kiribati and fortunate enough to assist Tierati Maui Tokaman with his class at St. Louis High School, Tarawa.

So, how many nieces and nephews  do I…

Best of Luck Form 7s!!!!

FSFE starts tomorrow. It is an auspicious day because exam brings promotion with it. If no exam then no promotion, to get promoted to next level one must pass the exam. Exam (as in in economist) is a random variable means what will come in exam is unknown, and this suspense triggers one to study to his/her optimum level that is achieving maximum efficiency, and this hardship like fire makes person shine and precious like gold.

May all Form 7's of RHS (@2012) do their very best…

World teachers day

Yesterday was world teachers day and the humble teachers here decided as usual to forego the celebrations. This has been our practise for years now. How come? I'll tell you why... one year all the enthusiatic students laughing boarded the truck with their salusalu and robei for their individual teachers.Someone asked,' who is that for?' The student said proudly, 'oh it is for my teacher.' A bitter reply came,' well,it is a day for the students to be fed all the nice food by their students.'…

engllish vs vernacular

Again we are fighting to uplift the english expression of our students.Vernacular always rears its unwanted head in school and detention is one way of encoraging students to use english.Sometimes it seems that the students do not want to waste their time with such a language!!! We welcome any constructive suggestion that would make students speak english more in school.

prime minister's visit

We are thankful for the visit which was advertised through the photos preceding this.One point of interest was that all who came were influential people who upon consensus would approve of future projects for the school.As a result , we are getting two staff quarters next year and an ablution block for the students.What really had us in tickles during the visit was the fact that we were all out at the admin block ,looking our best.... and when the first part of the envoy arrived ,they did not… Continue

iguana photo

below is the photo of the new iguana that was brought to the school. What to do when you see one? KILL IT.You are to slit it from the throat to the tail and take the eggs [it usually has about 60 eggs] and burn them.The eggs can be found in the sandy beaches as they lay eggs like the turtles. If you habour one you are liable for jail because it is a threat to our plantations. It is vegetarian and if it reproduces on the island our rhs students would certainly lack greeny vegetables. 60…

doctor's visit

Last week the students were blessed to have free check -ups from the seventh day adventist trainee doctors and retired nurses and dentists. The highlight of our check up was the cleaning of all our ears- .....did you know that when you use cotton ear buds you are just pushing your ear wax further in? ...well... thats what we learnt with our students.Moreover, the kind medics did a thorough check-up on our students. You know this type of assistance is really valued. Here is a photo of…

RHS present situation

We are now into examinations and the students as usual are 100% present. The weather is cold and miserable and the transport as usual.At least the bus reaches up to the junction..for how long wonders.Boarders about to go home as budget busts ..hoping for the best in term three. Projects by MOE about to begin next. I hope the results will reveal an upward trend this term as compared to term I.The main problem is the absence of students and we are still waiting for our promised bush bikes… Continue
